Uterine Fibroid Embolization Testimonial

Dr.Kouri and Dana Nakamura

Dana's Story

Over seven years ago, Dana Nakamura started having unpredictable, heavy periods that caused her to become anemic.

Dana was diagnosed with uterine fibroids, but she was fearful of surgery. That’s when Dana’s gynecologist urged her to speak with Wake Forest Baptist Health’s interventional radiologists about Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE.)

Dana went on to have UFE to treat her fibroids. She was discharged from the hospital the next day. She returned to having regular periods and has not required any further treatment.
